The aim of Guide in Toscana is to promote a sustainable tourism, connected with giving value to the excellence of what we love to define as “the best part” of Tuscany: our hamlets, castles, parish churches, abbeys far from the mass tourism’s frantic pace and unbridled consumerism, and its sensational and distorted aspect.
These are true and real territorial excellences that after so many centuries keep on miraculously living in a symbiosis with a worldwide unique agrarian landscape. The Tuscan territory has been shaped throughout the centuries thanks to the intelligence of its makers and inhabitants: the creators of an agricultural economy faithful to the forms of its landscape, able to make the most of every inch of land, turning farming and agriculture into a form of art and culture.
The history of important cities such as Florence, San Gimignano or Siena cannot be fully understood without a thorough and detailed analysis of their landscape: their grandeur is due to the constant attention to their land and communities
